General Updates

Thank you to All who attended the Pop up Pub in Storwood on Friday 23rd. Together we have raised over £500 which is a fantastic amount and up from this time last year. 
Heather Verity has volunteered to check the accounting and distribute the funds to the two charities (Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Macmillan Nurses), so the exact amount will be published ASAP. 
Thank you again and we hope to see you on the 21st December when the Friends of Melbourne school will be taking the reins (dressed in Santa suits I hear!)


Note from Julie Nickolson regarding the Flower Festival to mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War;
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who helped and came, to the Remembrance Commemorations in the village. The church has very kindly given their share of the donations back to the fund, to go to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and The Royal British Legion. Which is amazing. So today I have had great pleasure in writing 2 cheques for £1046.70 each. Absolutely fantastic.
(An Image Gallery will be available on this website soon.)


Please note the services to be held at St Mary's Church for Sept, Oct and Nov have been added to the Event pages.
